We are smack dab in the middle of summer break, and though summer break means lots of family fun and adventure, it also means lots of hours in the car. Road trips, visits to theme parks, weekends at the beach or in the mountains – all of that fun is frequently accompanied by endless hours on the road. To keep the kids entertained, we play a lot of classic road trip games, and the license plate game is one of our favorites. This year, I decided to change things up a little bit, and instead of simply calling out the names of states as we see new license plates, I created a United States coloring map to keep track of which states we’ve seen. Just color in the matching state every time you see a new license plate!

The road trip coloring map was a huge hit with my family, but they were even more excited about the Sweet & Salty S’mores Snack Mix that I whipped up for our trip!

Ingredients for Sweet and Salty S'mores Snack Mix with Flipz

What You’ll Need to Make S’mores Snack Mix:

  • FLIPZ® Milk Chocolate Covered Pretzels (you can also use Dark Chocolate or mix and match!)
  • Graham Cereal
  • Mini Marshmallows

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together all of the ingredients. I like to use the entire package of FLIPZ with 1/2 cup each of the graham cereal and marshmallows. Give it a quick stir, and then pour the snack mix right back into the FLIPZ package! The resealable package is perfect for storing your snack mix on the go!

There’s no question that the s’mores snack mix was the highlight of our road trip, but this coloring map wasn’t far behind! It adds a whole new level of fun and excitement to the classic license plate game, and it’s a great way for kids to learn or brush up on their geography skills. One of our school requirements this year is to learn the location of all 50 states, so this was a fantastic way to start working on those skills!

It’s seriously awesome to be able to easily see where all of those different state license plates came from and to see how far they have traveled! For long multi-state road trips, you can also use the map to trace your route as you drive along.

  1. Fantastic idea! My husband and I will be using this for our trip around New England this fall! Thank you so much! (it downloaded just fine, too!)

  2. I love this idea! But when I go to download the map it does take awhile, but when its finished the map is still not there. It’s just a blank white page. My has been up for 15- 20 mins. and still nothing.

    1. Sorry to hear that, Erica! I just tried to email you the file, so please let me know if that worked for you or not! 🙂

    1. Thanks for the message, Sue. For some reason, that pdf is taking an exceptionally long time to load once you click on it (I’ll investigate the issue!), but it does load eventually after a minute or two (just click the pdf link and then leave that screen up and open until it loads). Thanks for letting me know!
